PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop!

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Yay! It's Blog Hop time! I just know I will find a ton of holiday ideas to recreate from 'hopping' tonight. To view all the projects, click on this link. You will then need to click on "Blog list of participants".

I made a gift ensemble which is a handmade ornament made using PaperTrey Ink's Guide Lines set along with a matching card.

I found this kind of origami-of-sorts ornament on some obscure forum. It was so easy to make once I finished stamping the pattern and was able to decipher the instructions. Here's the play-by-play.
You will need 6 pieces of 2.5"x2.5" card stock or patterned paper.

You will be folding the paper so that the tip of the corner meets in the center then fold. I decided I wanted to be a little more precise, so I marked off the middle and where the fold line would be so I could score it to make it a lot neater.

Here's what all the pieces looked like after you folded the corners to the center.

Next you just glue the folded pieces together. This ornament has six sides, just like a dice. I found it easiest to do the 4 perimeter sides and then put on the top and bottom. Here's a picture of all the sides put together minus the one on top.

And here's the finished product!


Here is a close-up of the card I made to match the ornament.
Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!
